Tiles are a common part of all houses. How can you use these simple blocks to create something different and unique? Read on to find out.

1.     Mix The Floor

Who says the entire flooring for a room needs to be consistent? Mix things up and create a visual difference between two parts of a room. This helps when you want more out of a small room or if you just want to dedicate a part of your room to a particular activity. In the design here, the area with the tiles seems like a patio area separating itself from the area with the wooden flooring that is the dining area.

2.     Experiment With Tile Shapes

Rectangular and square tiles are soo common. They are generally the go-to tile shape for any room. An uncommon tile shape immediately makes the room look different yet keeps things subtle.

3.     Prints In The Bathroom

We often tend to overlook bathroom tiles and keep them plain white and simple. However we spend a lot of time in this particular room (an average of one hour and 42 minutes a week to be exact). Printed tiles are a great way to liven this place up. Another great benefit is it looks cleaner since the prints camouflage all marks.

4.     Partial Bathroom prints

Not everyone likes their bathrooms to be completely printed, since it can be a little too much for the eyes sometimes. A good way to get the best of both worlds is to have partial prints in the bathroom. When only a part of the bathroom has a print, it’ll bring in more emphasis on that print and keep you space looking chic and elegant.
